The 1620s House and Garden at Donington le Heath

Select one of the education sessions and travel in time. Come face to face with some stunning objects, living history interpreters in costume and our inspirational workshop spaces including a maze and beautiful gardens. Learn about upstairs-downstairs life; play the musical instruments, dress up and have fun with the games. And learn about one of the gunpowder plotters, Sir Everard Digby, whose family owned the house for over two hundred years.

The 1620s House is a wonderful venue for creative educational experiences within a truly historical setting. Our cross-curricular sessions are led by costumed characters and delivered for EYFS and KS1 – 2 groups with links to history, science, PHSE and English.

You can book on to either a half day or full day session from only £7 per pupil. And all educators can bring/group leaders can bring their family for FREE for a pre-visit.
